During the COVID-affected summer, live happenings have been in pretty short supply BUT behind the scenes, the organizers at ShazamFest—Quebec’s quirkiest outdoor showcase of music and performing arts—have been hard at work to offer culture-thirsty crowds a twist on their beloved summer gathering (…safely, with thoroughly-washed hands, and at the requisite social distances of course!!)
This Labour Day weekend (September 5, 2020), ShazamSeries 2020 will go out with a bang with The Rockabilly Soul Series Finale featuring Montrealer’s Bloodshot Bill and Perfect Strangers on the Shazam main stage. With recent announcements that Quebecers can attend public gatherings in crowds of up to 250 and that festivals can resume their activities, the ShazamSeries has come a long way since opening up in July. For closing night, capacity is up to 250 people, with 150 spots for camping, which opens at 1pm on Saturday for folks who want to arrive early and enjoy the day!

I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
